Cage the Songbird (song)
|"Cage the Songbird"|
|Song by Elton John from the album Blue Moves|

|Writer||Elton John, Bernie Taupin, Davey Johnstone|
"Cage the Songbird" is a song written by Elton John, Bernie Taupin, and Davey Johnstone and performed by Elton John, first appearing on the album Blue Moves in 1976. It tells the fictional story of torch singer Edith Piaf's last hours before a tragic suicide (Piaf actually died of liver cancer). The theme of a celebrity's tragic life and death recalled John-Taupin's earlier song, "Candle in the Wind", from 1973's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.
